  • Tignanello was not the first Super Tuscan, Sassicaia has that honor, but it's perhaps the most influential. Aging in barrique and eschewing white grapes for the power of Cabernet Sauvignon disqualified the Antinori's masterpiece for the Chianti DOC in 1970, instead assigning it, then lowly, IGT status,. But an allure was born. Ironically, recent laws would now qualify Tignanello as Chianti Classico DOCG. Intense and powerful.
